WEBSITE HOPES NOT TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY

http://www.ateaseweb.com/ has been too successful for its own good and needs donations if it is to survive...

The most successful RADIOHEAD website in the world is facing closure, after becoming a victim of its own success.

Established in 1997, www.ateaseweb.com has earned a reputation as a source of Radiohead information so accurate the band themselves regularly visit to find out what they’re up to.

However, since the leak of ‘Hail To The Thief’ earlier this year, fans have been coming in their hundreds of thousands. Founder Adriaan Pels maintains the site from his Dutch home but now can’t afford to keep it going on his own.

“The site has been very busy for years now, but since March the number of visitors went through the roof and never dropped,” he told NME.COM. “I can’t afford it any more.”
